Art can help students communicate their ideas and express themselves, whether inside or outside of an arts classroom. In facts, the arts can often come alive for students when fused with other subject areas. In today's digital classrooms, what students create and how they create has never been more expansive, and with the rise of digital design and STEAM, students can use the arts to contextualize and demonstrate STEM learning (as well as humanities learning). Whether students are into traditional fine art, music, theater, dance, design, coding, or beyond, digital creation tools offer students myriad opportunities to create and share whatever they can image. Explore the terrific tools on this list to find ways to empower your students to move from consumption to creation, and to make their voices and perspectives heard.
